Thought For Tuesday…

Never let others project their sense of limited ability on you. The greater part of society and school rob us big time. We are made to feel that our abilities are limited and the continued reinforcement of these limitations erodes our creative confidence.

Every single one of us is born with incredible imagination, intelligence, and intuition, but when we are untrained to tap into these powers they simply shrivel and die.

As adults, many of us are lugging around the baggage of all the ‘you can’t and ‘limiting mindset’ that we acquired in childhood. Due to these habits that we learned growing up, constant settling, avoidance of risk, and learned helplessness become a norm.  Most people settle to such an extent that they believe that ‘this is as good as it gets and can’t be better.’ They are contented trudging along the treadmill of a mediocre life,  barely breaking any sweat and never getting anywhere.

Your fear must never be the fear of being different but the fear of settling for mediocrity.

Thought For Thursday…

Rivalry has some positive sides. It might energize and motivate you. However, it should never hold such power over you that it diverts you from your own path and individual strength in a blind pursuit of others.

Thoughts For Tuesday…

Sometimes we expend too much time and energy learning the rules that we forget to play the game. Most times, you are better off throwing away the rule book and wading in heads on. You’ll figure it out.

Don’t give doubt a welcoming chair

‘cos he’s a sweet talker.

He will overstay his welcome,

and tell you all the things

that you cannot do;

just to convince you

to dig up the seeds

that you planted in faith.

Sail On…A Thought For Tuesday

Our hardship forms the backbone of our success. Without these travails – as unpleasant as they may be – where would our stories of triumph be?

 

Your past is not your anchor

Be the master of your sea

Your boat has many ports to visit.

Thought For Monday…

Each day we are given the opportunity to write our reality. What are you writing today?

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end, it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come. Habakkuk 2:3 

The Patched Ones…

 

Here are the beautiful ones.

Hidden in the shadows of the glittery ones,

many times they’ve been broken,

and unevenly patched by the potter’s hands,

yet their value is priceless.

This is about us. Many are broken. Many are hurting. Many have forgotten their true worth. Many are clinging to past mistakes and allowing them to dictate their present circumstance. Many hold on to their pain and weave unforgiveness into their soul. They forget to put down their burden at the Masters’ feet not knowing that in the potters’ hands, their broken pieces are gathered, refined and made far better than the original piece. Just like the Japanese practice of golden joinery ‘Kintsugi,’ – when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful. No one is ever too broken to be fixed.

Come to me all you who labour and are heavy laden and I will grant you rest. Matthew: 11: 28 – 29
